Will give it a go but only got the Watson W-300 on the shed at the moment. I am going to set a wire antenna up over the weekend but very busy tomorrow getting the shed lined and electric fitted!

Good luck with the station Andy and hope the weather stays nice for you all...

GB5PPF / GB5OFD

Post by G7LFC on Mon Jun 30, 2008 8:04 am

The reason the callsign was changed was because the event we were attending was initially to be called the 'Ormskirk Fun Day'. However, unbeknown to me the event organisers renamed it to 'Park Praise Funday'. We were obliged to change the callsign otherwise GB5OFD would have been referencing a non-existant event.

Hi Derek,

That makes sense now we know the name of the fun day was changed!

I wonder if you made many contacts? Was it a good day? Was listening out but dont have HF yet but by next weekend I might!

Dave

Derek,

Can you confirm the call sign for the Special Event Station? Was it GB5PPF or GB7PPF as stated on your club website-
